I specialise in:
- leadership and career development
- managing complex change
- resolving conflict
- and building highly effective executive teams.
My ultimate aim is to support concrete improvements to the quality, efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of client organisations.
To achieve this, I delight in adapting ideas from some of the more complex theories about organisational life, and translating these into accessible, practical, jargon-free ideas for the benefit of progressive organisations.
For example, my work is informed by a combination of:
- strategic tools for shaping the future trajectory of organisations
- systems theory for understanding the dynamics of organisations (illustrated in this blog about the stargazing club)
- organisational psychology to make sense of human behaviour in the workplace (explained in this blog about holding organisations together in a crisis)
- psychometric tools for appreciating ordinary differences between individuals (such as Myers Briggs step I and II, Firo-B, 16PF – see sample reports here) and
- cultural theory to put the experiences of staff and service users in a wider social context.
